1. It won't let me read it, but...
Edited on Wed Jun-03-09 12:23 AM by Deadric Damodred far as "assault weapons" are concerned, the case is they are common. And I made a thread about the "dangerous & unusual" clause, and was told by those even more knowledgable than me that that particular clause has already been legally shown to be in regard to NFA weapons. Now .50 BMG rifles, I don't know how common they are. I own the AR-50...which is damned fun to shoot...but that ran me $3000, plus $200 for the bipod, plus $400 for the scope, plus $100 for the scope rings, plus $400 for 100 rounds of ammo.......that's a lot of money. So, even though I think they are protected as they are not NFA weapons, I'm not so sure it would be easy to call them "common".

Let me do a quick edit here for the anti-gunners reading this: Yes, I bought a badass rifle that I have no training whatsoever for, and will only shoot, where legal to shoot it, at things like bowling pins and cinder blocks. Why? Because it gets my giggle. That's my justifcation for it.....because that gun to me, is like a kid that just got a hand full of firecrackers. You can take that justification and shove it.
